Moto X+1 Rumors: 3D Display and Optical Zoom

Motorola’s upcoming flagship smartphone will offer buyers some interesting new features including some sort of 3D display support and a rear camera with optical zoom, GSM Arena reports, quoting a source with a good track record with Motorola rumors.

FROM EARLIER: This is the Moto X+1

HellomotoHK, which posted alleged pictures of the Moto X+1 in the past that appeared to have been confirmed by @evleaks’ final leak, revealed more information about the handset on Facebook, providing a screenshot from what looks like a retail page for the handset written in Portuguese.

According to the site, the smartphone will offer touchless control and active display features, something expected from a Moto X successor, but also a “super camera with optical zoom,” and some sort of “3D recognition” support that may be related to the display. The feature hasn’t been further described, so it’s not clear what it actually is.

Additionally, the image says the phone will have a 5.2-inch display with Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, and Android 4.4 KitKat under the hood.

A recent report said Motorola will launch some eight new handsets this year, including the Moto X+1 flagship and a Nexus 6 (Nexus X) smartphone.
